TUCSON, Ariz. — A fast food chain is offering a major new benefit to its employees.

Chipotle's newly announced "debt-free degree" program offers free tuition toward 75 degree programs at several nonprofit universities.

Before Tuesday's announcement, Chipotle already offered tuition reimbursement to its employees. The new debt-free education program promises no up-front costs.

Employees who have been at the company for at least 120 days and work a minimum of 15 hours per week can choose from 75 different degree programs at five schools: the University of Arizona, Bellevue University, Brandman University, Wilmington University and Southern New Hampshire University.

Chipotle will cover tuition only if employees remain at the company, and they are asking that employees stay for at least six months after they earn their degrees.
